Simmons Beginnings 

John Simmons, a prominent Boston clothing manufacturer 
and real estate developer, died in 1870. His will provided 
for his remaining family - two daughters and two 
granddaughters - as well as for the founding of an 
educational institution: 

It is my will to found and endow an institution to 
be called Simmons Female College, for the 
purpose of teaching medicine, music, drawing, 
designing, telegraphy, and other branches of art, 
science, and industry best calculated to enable the 
scholars to acquire an independent livelihood. 

The actual funding for this college did not become 
available for almost 30 years, however, having been 
delayed by the Great Fire of 1872. Simmons's real estate 
holdings had been located primarily in Boston's financial 
district, and the Great Fire destroyed many of the 
properties that had been substantial income providers. 
Rebuilding took many years; it was not until 1899 that 
sufficient funding was available to establish the college 
the John Simmons had envisioned

Traditions Through the Years 

It all started in 1904... 

Although the college may continually be changing, one thing remains the same, Simmons is a community 
rich in tradition. In the early 1900's the events that Simmons Women held dear to their hearts were the 
Faculty-Student Baseball Game, Freshman Frolic, Founder's Day, Ghost Walk, Hobo Party, Junior-Fresh 
man Wedding, May Day, Olde English Dinner, Step-Singing, and of course the Student Government Party. 
Today we look forward to the traditions of Hall Tea, Father-Daughter Weekend, Family Weekend, The 
Valentine 's Ball/Simmons Soiree, Spring Spree Weekend, Woman 's Legacy Weekend, and May Day. 

There is one tradition that all women from the past One Hundred Classes will remember. It is not every da 
that the Sophomores run through Evans Hall banging pots and pans to wake up the members of the Senior 
Class. The May Day Celebration is still valued by the Class of 2005 as highly as it was by the members d 
the Class of 1912.

The Beatley Library 7 renovations will begin this summer, following the destruction of the building in July. Tl 
renovations will include study rooms, a new area for the computer workstations, new space for the circulation desk, ne 
entrance, as well as areas for quiet study, and some open areas for not so quiet study. We want the library to be multi-purpos 
attractive and comfortable," Daphne Harrington, director of the Libraries and also member of the library Renovatii 
Advisory Committee, said. "We want the library to better support student's needs." This includes technology needs, bool 
and periodicals, and a more comfortable environment that is better suited for studying and learning, she said. There will 1 
15 study rooms added throughout the library. Most will fit six people but a few will be large enough for groups that ha\ 
up to 10. "Some will have media [VCRs, TVs, computers, etc.] and some won't, but all will be wired for the technology 
Harrington said. If the room needs to be outfitted with the technology later it will already be wired to do so. "We will pha: 
it in as students need it," she said. For the study rooms that do not have computers, laptops will be available from the ne 
Technology Service Desk (TSD). The TSD is the replacement for the computer lab, L109. The computer lab will no long 
be in the basement, but will be located on the second floor, where the reference desk and its collections are now. Tl 
computer lab will no longer be a room but out in the open and set up in computer stations on the second floor. "I think 
will be more beneficial to the students. They will know where we [the consultants] are and they won't wonder where Lll 
is," computer consultant Kerline St. Fleur said. "Most students don't even know that the computer lab exists." Half of tl 
reference desk will be moved and will sit across from the elevator and stairs leading into the library. The other half will becon 
the TSD, and that section, when renovated, will contain computer stations that will be under the care of the TSD and i 
student workers, much like LI 09 and its computer consultants. The circulation desk will be moving to the basement, whe 
the new entrance is located and where the periodicals are now. Also in the basement will be a quiet reading and study an 
Other quiet study areas will also be located throughout the building. Current renovations for the new library building a 
scheduled to start this summer, and will not be completed until December of 2005, so until then there will be an Interi 
Library. As a result of the construction, Harrington said there will be a few inconveniences including noise, dust, less seatii 
in library, parts of some collections will be moved off-site, and the library will not be accessible through the MCB. Harringti 
said that the noise and dust are problems but they are part of construction. "We will be making accommodations to mal 
sure student and faculty needs are met during this time." She also said that although some books will be moved off-site tin 
will still be accessible, "The catalog will reflect the books that have been moved off site and students can request to ha- 
them brought back." Everything is scheduled to be relocated out of the Beatley building after commencement and then tl 
new library entrance will be open. Once the Beatley building has been closed the library will not be reachable through tl 
MCB. The Interim Library is scheduled to open officially on June 1. The Beatley building will be destroyed in July and tl 
new building will be started in August. In the Interim Library the TSD, reference desk and circulation desk will be move 
to where they are going to be in the final renovation.

Project Summary 2004 

In recognition of the integral role of the Simmons 
Libraries in the successful implementation of the 
educational goals and mission of the College, in Jan 
'03 the Board of Trustees approved a major renovation 
and expansion for the Libraries. The Library will grow 
from approximately 32,000 square feet currently to 
45,000 square feet, and will be given a new entrance 
and identity on campus, enhancing its place as a 
welcoming, supportive, vibrant learning environment. 
In the renovated library, Simmons will provide 25% 
more comfortable and usable seating for students, with 
over 500 seats ranging from private study carrels to 
soft chairs to team tables. In addition, the new library 
is designed to support the weight of compact shelving, 
so over time we will have the capacity to double the 
size of our print collections. We will also be adding 15 
new technology equipped group study rooms of 
varying sizes, and 5 new event and meeting spaces. 
The new library will have an Information Commons, 
which will provide more computers and wireless 
laptops for students, as well as a student help desk. 
This Technology Support Desk will be co-located with 
the existing library service points - the Access Desk 
(circulation, reserves and interlibrary loan) and the 
Reference Desk (research assistance and instruction). 
The new building will improve the layout and 
functionality of the library and provide a state-of-the- 
art, technology-equipped facility that will assist 
Simmons faculty, staff and students in achieving 
academic excellence.

Dear Simmons Students, Colleagues, and Friends: 

After much thought and conversation with the Board of Trustees, I have 
submitted my resignation as president as of June 30, 2006. Sue and I 
reached our decision after weighing carefully what would be best both 
for us and for Simmons. We take great satisfaction from our work at 
Simmons, but we have concluded that the College should welcome its 
new president well before launching the next major capital campaign. 
That campaign will be vital for Simmons's future, and we cannot 
commit to the several years the next campaign's timetable will require. 
And the campaign's likelihood of success will be pfpatfr if t-Vipt-p is not 


Considering that the Board of Trustees hired me in 1995 for just one 
year, the Board and the Simmons community have fully supported my 
work as president for a decade since then. The Board's leadership — and 
friendship — has been outstanding. Any college president in the country 
would be lucky to have as wonderful a Board of Trustees as ours. Sue 
and I also have gained many good friends at Simmons, as well as the 
preat satisfaction of workine with able colleagues to achieve important 

great satistaction ot working witn able colleagues to acmeve important 
goals. We have worked side by side with outstanding faculty and staff colleagues and learned much from them. We have met 
wonderful students — undergraduate and graduate — and even have seen some return to Simmons as alumnae/i leaders. We 
have gotten to know talented alumnae/i whose work and lives exemplify the Simmons mission. We have gained so much from 
the Simmons community. 

Graduates who return to Simmons always remark on the tremendous changes on the campus. The new College Center, tlr 
renovated Conference Center, six renovated residence halls, the new building at One Palace Road, the new library, and countless 
improvements to classrooms, offices, and technology across Simmons are what a visitor notices first. But important as these* 

Rather, we are proud Simmons has regained its pride and confidence. We are proud Simmons has affirmed its commitment 
to women and has given this commitment new relevance for the future. We are proud that independent accrediting agencies' 
have awarded Simmons's academic programs the highest possible ratings, and bond rating agencies have upgraded Simmons's 
bonds to investment quality. We are pleased that record numbers of undergraduate and graduate students have enrolled at 
Simmons. Above all, we are proud that members of the Simmons community realize that good people, working together, 

By announcing my resignation now, I am confident there will be enough time for an extensive search for the next president, 
including time for him or her to give adequate notice and move to Boston. In the 1 8 months until the next president arrives, 
Sue and I will continue to work hard with the Board and our Simmons colleagues to complete major tasks currently underway, 
as well as launch new priorities for future success. Of course, we also will assure a smooth transition to the next president. 
Simmons will continue to have our full commitment and energy. 

Under the Board of Trustees' continued strong leadership, and with the vision and ability of the next pi 
support of the entire Simmons community, I am confident Simmons's future will be even brighter. 

With warm regards and appreciation, 

le engaged 

Daniel S. Cheever, Tr. 


Dear Members of the Simmons Community: 

With sincere regret and deep appreciation, the Simmons Board of Trustees has accepted Dan 
Cheever's decision to resign in June of 2006 as the College's sixth president. 

Dan reminds me that we hired him in 1995 to serve a one-year term! A decade later, under his 
leadership, Simmons has prospered mightily in virtually every respect: record enrollment growth, 
strong and stable financial performance, new academic facilities, improved morale, and a record- 
setting capital campaign. His legacy will endure, and so will our gratitude. 

As much as Dan and Sue say they have gained from Simmons, they have returned more to us many 
times over. Working together, Simmons trustees, president, faculty, staff, students, and alumnae/ 
i have a great record of accomplishment, and the prospect of a very bright future. 

The timing of Dan's decision gives the Board of Trustees ample time to launch a careful and 
thoughtful presidential search. I am pleased to announce that I have appointed a search 
committee chaired by Jo-Ann Robotti '75, which will immediately begin this important task. I 
anticipate that the committee will be aided by an executive search firm and will be expanded 
shortly with a few members of the Simmons community. The Board is committed to an open, 
inclusive search process, including the opportunity for community members to meet final 
candidates before the Board makes its decision. We hope to make an appointment by January 
2006, allowing a six-month transition period before the new president begins on or about July 

Again, the members of the Board of Trustees join me in thanking Dan and Sue for their service 
to Simmons. We look forward to continuing our work together over the next 18 months, knowing 
that their efforts will be, as always, vigorous and productive. We also look forward to many 
opportunities to express pur heartfelt gratitude and to foster our friendship in the years to come. 

With warm regards, 

Lucia Luce Quinn '75, 

Chair Simmons Board of Trustees

Everybody Wins 
Simmons College Athletics 

It's about the playing-to-win sweat of serious competition. 
It's about rejuvenating the soul by getting fit and living well. 
And it's about a spirit of community, connecting with other 

simply to have some fun. 

The athletics program at Simmons is designed to benefit all 
students — from the high school Ail-American stars and solid 

performers recruited to compete at the NCAA Division III 
level, to hundreds of casual sports and recreation enthusiasts. 

Everyone who attends Simmons is encouraged to participate 

in athletic activities. The College's philosophy about this is 

simple: involvement in sports helps students to practice 

healthy lifestyles and better prepare for life's challenges. 

Athletics helps students to learn about the rewards of team- 
work, the responsibility of leadership, and the demands of 
competition, self-discipline, and time management. Athletics 
helps develop well-rounded individuals amid an atmosphere 
of academic excellence and achievement.

Minneapolis, MN 

With the banks of the Charles River less than a 
mile from the College, Simmons women have 
enjoyed the city's rich tradition of competitive 
rowing since 1978. Experienced rowers compete at 
the varsity level, while newcomers to the sport can 
learn the rudiments of rowing on the novice team. 
The Sharks race during the fall and spring semesters- 
practicing out of the Riverside boathouse during 
the warmer months and at the William J. Holmes 
Sports Center in the winter using Simmons's indoor 
rowing tanks. Each October the team competes 
with rowers from around the globe in the Head of 
the Charles Regatta, the largest single-day regatta 
in the world, held right here in Boston. 

The head crew coach, Nikolay Kurmakov, brings 
13 years of rowing experience to the program. He 
holds rowing honors for first place finishes at the 
National Championships in Ukraine and the 
former Soviet Union from 1973-1975. Coach 
Nikolay Kurmakov competed at the 2001 World 
Games in Canada. He took first place, winning a 
gold medal, in the master's division, men's single's 
event, as well as first place {gold medalist) in the

season tournament. The Sharks finished the year with 
a 12-6 overall record and 8-3 in the conference; the team 
advanced to the semi-finals of the North Atlantic 
Conference (NAC) tournament. The team received 
their first ever bid to ECAC post season tournament

in every aspect of the game," said Starek, who was voted 
Top Coach of the Conference by her peers. "We had 
excellent leadership from our two senior captains and 
will be a contender in conference play next . year".

Simmons College has sponsored soccer since 1989 and in that 
time has established itself in NCAA Division III and the Great 
Northeast Athletic Conference as one of die strongest teams in 
the New England region. The team is the two-time defending 
conference regular season champion, and the 2004 post-season 
This year's team represented the conference in the 
lurnament against Middlebury College. 

Simmons Soccer is a very competitive group, with many players 
coming to the program with club, high school and ODP 
experience. As with all of the teams at Simmons, though, 
backgrounds vary and most who are willing will find a spot on 
our teams. 

Under the direction of head coach Dick Dawson, Simmons has 
finished no worse than third in conference play, and has a 16-2-1 
record over the last two years. The team allowed only four goals 
in conference play in 2004, scoring 53. In that time, the Sharks 
have had seventeen players selected to All-Conference teams, 
and had 14 selected to All-Toumament teams including the 
Rookie and Player of the Year, and MVP of the Tournament in 

The team plays intelligent attacking soccer, with all of its players 
working together to form a formidable unit Coach Dawson has 
worked at virtually every level of soccer in the United States, 
currently serving as a senior staff coach with the Region I 
Olympic Development Programs. He has twice been selected as 
Coach of the Year, travels to numerous camps around the 
country, and has spoken at conferences on "Coaching Elite

It is said that tennis is a sport of individuals, 
but at Simmons we know how to play as a 
team and have done so since the team was 
founded in 1978. On campus, tennis is 
celebrated for its 61 percent winning 
record, the highest ol any Simmons sport 
Each year qualifying to compete at the 
Great Northeast Athletic Conference 
Championships. The team practices and 
competes on six hard courts on the Winsor 
fields, which are located adjacent to the 
Simmons residence campus. The 11 -week 
regular season begins in late August 

Coach Elinor Ross comes to Simmons with 
national and international outstanding 
playing experience. She held New England 
tennis ranking for nine years (1984 through 
1993), has represented New England at the 
master's Maccabiah Games national tryouts 
in 1993 and 1997, and won the bronze 
medal for doubles at the 1995 Maccabiah 
Games in Buenos Aires. In addition, she 
competed in last summer's games in Israel. 

Off the court, Coach Ross served at die 
1993 Boston Girls Regional Maccabiah 
Youth Games coach, head gids coach at 
Dedham Country Day School and Beaver 
Country Day School, and Tennis Program 
Coordinator at the Pine Brook Country 
Club in Weston, Massachusetts. 

After a slow start,, the Shark volleyball team finished 
on a high note. Led by sophomore captain Chel'c 
Pool, who was named to the GNAC All Conference 
third team, the Sharks made their third consecutive 
appearance in the GNAC tournament, where they 
fell to the eventual conference champions, 
Emmanuel College. 

Having made major improvements this year, die 
program hopes to make waves in the conference 
next season. The Sharks, who had no seniors on 
their roster, will be loaded with experience as they 
gear up for next fall! 

The Sharks Volleyball is poised for an explosive 
year. The team had a great rebuilding year finishing 
the season 6-16. Look for returning Captain Chel'c 
Pool to lead the way for the Sharks this year as 
they look to go further in the conference 
tournament. Competing in die Great Northeast 
Athletic Conference, the sharks play against regional 
powerhouse such as Ml Holyoke, Emmanuel and 
2004 GNAC Champions Johnson & Wales. The 
volleyball team has been active at Simmons since the 
founding of die athletic program in 1978. The team 
practices and hosts games in the College's state-of- 
the-art Holmes Sports Center, which has seating 
capacity for 700 people.

Today Simmons College has been sponsoring 
women's varsity basketball for over 15 years as 
NCAA Division III member. The resurgence of 
program was prompted through the building of a 
modern athletic facility (Holmes Sports Center). 
Preseason conditioning starts in mid-September, 
and regular season play begins in October. The 
basketball program is taking huge strides by playing 
a tough conference schedule and an equally 
challenging non-conference schedule. Some of the 
perennial powerhouses that we have faced are 
Emmanuel College, Western New England, and 

Simmons belongs to the National Collegiate 
Athletic Association (NCAA), the Great Northe: 
Athletic Conference (GNAC), and the Eastern 
Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). 



Simmons built it — an eight lane, 30-meter pool with one- 
arid three-meter maxiflex diving boards, complete with 
sauna and hot tub — and swimmers and divers from across 
the country are coming. 

The Sharks' most recent success came last season when the 
team finished their season with a strong showing at The 
New England Championships, held at Bentley College. 
The Sharks placed 7th overall out of 20 teams. The team's 
final season record was 9-4, and was highlighted by a win 
at the Great Northeast Athletic Conference 
Championships. Diver Sarah Brown (Med ford, MA) 
qualified for Nationals, marking yet another milestone for 
the program in 2002.The team starts practice in September 
and competes in a four-month regular season. 

Coach Doug Backhand, a 1984 graduate of Springfield 
College, begins his sixth year at Simmons. Prior to coming 
to Simmons, Backlund gained experience as an assistant at 
Harvard and head coach at American University in 
Washington, DC. He has coached to Olympians and 
numerous Ail-Americans.

2005 Season Preview 

The 2004 Simmons Softball team finished 
their spring season shattering records. The 
Sharks continued making history with an 
impressive overall record of 20-15 and placing 
6th out of 12 teams in the Great Northeast 
Athletic Conference. The season was capped 
off with an exciting run in the GNAC playoff 
tournament before falling in 8 innings in the 
quarterfinals, to Emerson College 5-4. 

, Simmons will torn to the experience and 
leadership of its talented upperclassmen and 
call on a core of fresh talent for added depth 
on defense and consistency at the plate. Lead 
by GNAC Player of the Year, Annie 
Hennnigan and Senior Co-Capatton and 
GNAC First team player Amy Stenniagel, the 
sharks are poised to go far in the GNAC this 
up coming season and improve on dieir 15-9 
conference record of a year ago.

We Will Always Remember 

We were only first years, many of us far from the comforts of 
home, trying to make it in this new world called Simmons. 

We sat with our roommates and hallmates, fear in our eyes as 

we watched the planes hit the Twin Towers in New York 

Gty, a place on that day seemed all too close to Boston. 

Dean Murphy, President Cheever and other members of the 
community joined us on the quad for some time to reflect 
But really they were making sure everyone was ok. It was at 
that moment that the Class of 2005 came together as a mini- 
community. We watched as the older women comforted not 
only each other, but also us...their little sisters. We were truly 
members of this community of learners known as Simmons.
